Instead of plastic, metal and glass how about trying bamboo? Instead of a plastic toothbrush you could try a bamboo toothbrush, instead of a plastic hair brush try a bamboo hair brush, instead of meatal, plastic or paper straws you can also try a bamboo straw and even you could try bamboo cutlery instead of metal cutlery.
Bamboo grows 30cm-1.5m per year. In the same area bamboo can produce around 20 times as much timber compared to other woods so therefore it is cheaper. Bamboo is also harder than most woods so it is more durable in fact bamboo is one of the strongest woods whilst still being light. Bamboo usually has a diameter of around 20 cm.
